The Cuyler Walker syndrome

I don't know anyone in Chester County who is not talking about Cuyler Walker. Brahmins like him make good gossip.

However,Walker's public behavior has been erratic. To wit: He resigned as the GOP candidate for the 158th State Legislative District at the last minute; his name has been removed from the website of the Pepper Hamilton law firm, where he was a partner; and he showed up at a recent East Marlborough Township supervisors meeting, where he is chairman, and conducted the meeting as if nothing had happened.

No other East Marlborough supervisor said a word about Walker's public conduct.

Uncle Irvin does not have a Ph.D. in English, but if Walker's “personal circumstances” precipitated a last-minute resignation from a race for state office, how can those same “personal circumstances” not matter in a local public office? It just doesn't figure.

PS: Uncle Irvin has said more than once that Walker's 17-year tenure as an East Marlborough  supervisor has been very positive for the township and its residents
